Liquid Sunshine Mk3 Overdrive Pedal


The Liquid Sunshine MKIII is different from most other overdrives. It uses cascaded JFETs for gain rather than the typical opamp/diode design. Overdriven JFETs do not produce harsh clipping like diodes and are known to have some similarities to vacuum tubes.

The Volume and Overdrive knobs are fairly self explanatory; the Emphasis knob is similar to a tone control but is located between gain stages rather than after them. At low gain settings, this can add a treble boost. The MKIII also has two internal switches: one for boosting/cutting low frequencies at the output (useful if driving an already dirty amplifier); one for boosting/cutting high frequencies at the output (useful if you are using an amplifier with darker speakers)…

The Subdecay Liquid Sunshine MKIII was designed with tube amp players in mind. This is an overdrive in its truest form—capable of great overdrive tone on its own or for pushing your amp even harder. It is not meant to make your amp sound like something it’s not.
